Great song, incredible riff. Makes me want to jump and scream. One of the best bands in the world

Hands Down the Best Song. One of the best freaking bands of the 21st century

THE BEST SONG OF THE STROKES GOOD JOB FOR be in this top I really apreciate this song I put every day when I takin a sower your you should try

Best band. Best song. In all seriousness, the only problem with it is the fact that it doesn't go for 6 minutes. Few songs have this level of genius in them.

Last Nite Last Nite Cover Art

Very catchy song, one of the best I've heard from The Strokes. I can't stop listening to it! It also has a great beat and rhythm. Julian does a good job on the vocals. The rest if the band does fantastic too!

One of the best songs of the past decade julian does a great job with the vocals the entire band is amazing

Incredible, awesome, wonderful, amazing, brilliant, I don't know why it won't let me post this right now...

After hearing this song for the first time, I knew I couldn't let The Strokes go.

You Only Live Once You Only Live Once Cover Art

Meaning, motivating, upbeat, inspirational, great, awesome, sweet, lovely, cool, listen to it

It has the best guitar riffs of their many songs. I never get tired of listening to it. Right up there with the all the great songs off the previous two albums...

it not only a good song it talks about reality how people think of themselves and the music just move you. this is how I became to love the strokes

I love this song! The guitar is epic, and Julian's vocals are not only clear and understandable, but absolutely rocking! It just makes you wanna catch a ride to the beach and PARTY!

Love this song too!

This song has a great riff.

Great song to be honest

Yeah, great song.

Hard to Explain Hard to Explain Cover Art

The most rousing and most definitive of the Strokes songs. To me, it defines their sound. So much raw power and emotion, not to mention a really sexy song as well.

This song is so great to listen to at any time. I can always turn to this song when I'm in a bad mood. It's one of those songs that never get old! Julian sounds great!

cmon guys, this has by far the catchiest melody and the guitar parts are just beautiful. Shows off Julian's voice perfectly.

Fantastic summer tune! Something nostalgic this if you grew up with 90s alternative rock despite the fact it's not itself. Could listen to over and over.

Under Cover of Darkness Under Cover of Darkness Cover Art

This song is ridiculously catchy, but at the same time Casablancas sings with such passion.

One of the best songs to ever exist even though it's a "happy" song it shows a lot of strong feelings.

It's a close thing for all of them, but in my opinion this is their best - I have been addicted to the Strokes ever since I heard this song back in 2010. Not stopped listening to them for a year now, my favourite band of all time! Absolute love for the Strokes

Probably the tightest track they've recorded. The instruments all blend together extremely well, and there's plenty of tasteful guitar work. It is an interesting song since it has an upbeat and high energy groove that you can easily dance to, yet also has a melancholy feel to it lurking below the surface, especially in the way that Casablancas delivers the memorable vocal melody.

Someday Someday Cover Art

Their best song in my opinion, great lyrics, amazing tune and melody. Its pretty much the type of song that every strokes fan hopes for when an album is released. I just think its really great how this is the type of song that gets stuck in my head all day, yet it doesn't get annoying. Amazing song, end of story.

Last Nite is critically regarded as their best song, and honestly I can see why. It embodies the supercool apathy atmosphere the Strokes are all about. That sort of attitude is what makes the Strokes my favourite band of the century. They are the coolest band around today, hands down. But the song that got me into the Strokes is Someday. I have pleasant memories attached to this song and its feel good vibes. That's why it gets my vote.

"alone we stand, together we fall apart. " Those are unbeatable lyrics. Amazing instrumentals, amazing lyrics. I get shivers when I hear it.

This song takes me way back! Has a great summer feel, and is by far their best song! Catchy as hell too

Automatic Stop Automatic Stop Cover Art

This was the first song I've ever heard from the strokes and after I fell in love and it believe me I replayed this songs along with all the others but this is the one that'll never burn out

Guitar riff is so good! Oh my goodness. Why are the strokes amazing? For sure one of the most underrated songs.

Wow! I think this song should be wayy higher! Top 10 at least! It has an amazing guitar riff... Great vocals from Julian as usual... But the guitar riff is amazing! Definitely one of their most underrated songs

This is my favorite song! Its guitar riff is simply awesome. I always cry of joy when listening this song. I love it, I love The Strokes.

The End Has No End The End Has No End Cover Art

This song its pure beauty from start to end period. But the voice melody, men this has to be the greatest voice melody ever "He wants it easy he wanted relaxed! " Catchy as hell. Lyrics fit ridiculously fine on the voice harmony. If you're a vocalist on a rock band you WILL want to sing this song live. Its just. Damn its too perfect!

Can't explain how good it is.. it makes me get choked up. That little guitar part that nick does is just the best thing ever. please make this one the best! Show how much we love the strokes

How is this not in the top 10. Not even sure it's my favourite, there is too many great strokes songs; but number 16?!? This would definitely be in my top 3. Pure class from start to finish. Just my opinion but seriously I can't believe this is so low in the list

I'm not sure why, but I just LOVE this song. Every part, from the verses to the chorus to the bridge are all phenomenal.

Take It or Leave It Take It or Leave It Cover Art

Last song on their magnificent debut album. Last song and also their best song, although many other songs are fantastic as well.

When I first listened to it, the song blew me away and became one of my favourite songs of all time. Powerhouse song with so much passion. My favourite strokes song. So good

This album is my favorite Strokes album by far, and Take it or Leave it is definitely the best song on Is This it. Amazing guitar, non-stop catchiness, life-changing song really. Likaboss.

This song rocks! 100 times better than Reptilla! Can't believe this didn't even make top the top ten! Listen to it all the time.

The Contenders

Heart in a Cage Heart in a Cage Cover Art

Probably my favourite song ever. True rock'n'roll, the drunk Julian wrote it, with all the parts and this amazing solo guitar work. Real talent.

Hey Men! My favorite song of all times by far, classic from the strokes 00's

Dude, this song is absolutely amazing. Nice transition, nice clip and nice Julian's voice, as always.

Awesome guitars... This guys should make more songs like this

12:51 12:51 Cover Art

Hooked from the first listen when my brother turned it on and we we're flying down the road in the car and I kept going back to the same track over and over.

I was gonna vote for reptilia, but this was too low, its just an awesome song. Every thing about it is just awesome, especially the unique guitar sound.

My favourite Friday night party song. Listening to this in the bus when I'm going to town is just amazing, especially since I live in a cold country and the lyrics "F*** the winter, let's party... All right, let's go, you convinced me" just make me extremely happy I decided to let my friends convince me to go out!

Catchy song that come from the unique guitar sound and good lyric... this really is the one of the greatest rock song ever.

Alone, Together Alone, Together Cover Art

In my opinion, their most intense song. The bridge on this song is so ridiculously full of energy it's amazing.

How did this not rank in the top ten?!? This has got to be my second favorite song of all time from the strokes (:!

Juicebox Juicebox Cover Art

This song always makes gets me hyped up and feeling ready to take on the world! This is my favorite Strokes song of all time. I think it should be in the top 5 AT LEAST! I really don't know what else to say about it other than it's the most amazing song ever.. I really recommend this to any rock lovers and anyone who wants a thrill. Definitely a greaat song. GREAT.

Seriously y'all? This song's badass. Reptilia's only number one because of Guitar Hero

its cool and great riff this song

Most energetic strokes song ever: casablancas screams his head off: what a blast!

What Ever Happened? What Ever Happened? Cover Art

One of the BEST songs, not only on Room on Fire, but of all the Strokes songs. It's so underrated but it is seriously one of the best. The chorus gives me chills! The Strokes are the best band of the 21st century

This song gives me CHILLS! The riff, the chorus, the drums, EVERYTHING is amazing! It really is one of the best songs of the Strokes, too bad it's so underrated.

Should rank higher. Live this song. There is a reason why the strokes decided to start their album with this track.

How is this not top 5? This song is amazing in all aspects: chorus, solo, lyrics, bridge, etc

Red Light Red Light Cover Art

Best song of the worst/second worst album

The guitar-work in this song is too genius to put this at 38.

This song is just so sweet, like 'all the girls could never make me love them the way I love you' man that is sweet af

Vision of Division Vision of Division Cover Art

This is the greatest song ever.. It is wonderful during live performance.. I love all about this song sebu vida

How is this song not rated farther up the list, the guitar solo in it is totally awesome. One of the best songs on first impressions of earth which in my opinion is the strokes most underrated album

With a great lyrics and riff, comes. Great song

This has to be their best song, even beats Reptila and Had to Explain.

Machu Picchu Machu Picchu Cover Art

I absolutely love this! Best song in Angles by far. It never fails to excite me. Also, lyrics are really good.

It has some sort of psychedelic feel I just absolutely love! Great riffs, great chorus, melody, beat.

And here I thought I was going to have to add this gem to the list. Way to go other listeners!

It's one of the best opening songs ever! And it said so many true things about modern society

The Modern Age The Modern Age Cover Art

Wow, this should be a LOT higher. One of their top 2-3 classics. Best appreciated live, great guitar work, sweet solo, great lyrics and singing with a great melody.

This is the song that brought them to the public eye. The verses and the chorus are both brilliant. It's a great "feel good" song, too. Simply perfect.

An extremely good song. This song quite literally changed my life. Sounds good and nostalgic, and gives good feelings to the listener. Good music and lyrics as well. THIS SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 1, with Reptilia as Second Place.

This is definitely top 5, it's ludicrous that its down here

One Way Trigger

This is my song of the day, absolute perfection. Julian belting his heart out is amazing first and for most. The song brings a unique chorus pattern even for a band that already paces themselves so uniquely. Just an all around great song.

Their latest song but its up there with some of their best.

How is this song so low! Top 10 at least.

Julian Acts and screams like a girl here. The only highlight was him going higher than Adam levine.

Taken for a Fool Taken for a Fool Cover Art

it's because of this song that I listen now to a lot of the strokes' music. this should be in the top 10 man

What's wrong with this messed up list?!
Machu Picchu, Taken For A Fool, Take it oe leave it, Trying your luck... All these song should be in the top ten!
I love this song by the way...

Don't know if it's the best but it's the most catchy of the strokes just after last nite. For that it deserves to be in the top 5: reptilia, yolo, someday, last nite, machu pichu and (ups they just have so many great songs) taken for a fool. :P The strokes are the best band on planet earth.

Best strokes song for far!

Is This It Is This It Cover Art

"I'm just way too tired. " I think this is The Stroke's best song. If I had to choose one song to represent my life, this would be it. Everyone can relate to the weariness and frustration expressed in this song.

My favourite for I don't know what reason knowing there are some landmark songs in this landmark album.

I really love this song... The bass and the guitar are perfect!

Are you kidding me? This song should be om top 3! The meaning just amazing and can relatable to any moments.

Ize of the World Ize of the World Cover Art

The words are absolutely brilliant. The things that Julian sings really make you think. The way that the music builds up into the chorus and the delivery from all parts of the band puts it over the top. Best Strokes song hands down.

Disclaimer, The Strokes are my favorite. I love music in general, though, and have been to at least 25 concerts in my life. That being said, this song blew me away more live than any song I've ever heard live, period. Absolutely killer buildup to the very end (which blew up part of my left lobe) only to end abruptly. Amazing.

Despite it not being instantly catchy as their more pop-friendly songs, this one grows on you. Really nice guitars and dynamic drums. The chorus makes this song peak. The contrast between the powerful and loud instrumentation, and Julian's sad and hopeless singing and then a powerful scream like he burst into a tantrum. Brilliant.

Incredible lyrics, awesome guitar solo, outstanding vocal performance by Julian. Truly one of their best songs, if not their best.

Slow Animals Slow Animals Cover Art

Not a fangirl, a guy here actually, and I love this song. Julian is the father of a baby girl now, and understands the things that will come along as she gets older. This is the perfect song to describe every father who wondered, and were cautious about their little girl. Staying up late till their baby came home, this song is just the perfect description. I truly like their new album.

Tap Out

Such a good song, the electric vibe is just right

Are you kidding me? Best strokes song. Reptilia who? Seriously. The riff, lyrics, solo, Julian's singing, everything! Definitely in top 3

I think Comedown Machine needs a revisit from everyone, it seems to be entirely underrated.

The best song of comedown machine
